Elizabeth May gives her reasons for voting yes to invoke the emergencies act. Very well stated.

"What we are witnessing now is an acute failure of civic education in Canada. People simply do not understand their civic institutions, history or even basic political ideas. They do not understand who has what authority, or where the boundary of that authority resides. Evidence of this failure is all around us."

the ironic thing is that Info has never been easier to find with your phone or computer,  it took me about 30 sec to goggle "does Canada have a 1st amendment " and find out USA has a different 1st amendment than  Canada

but even without the computer a lot of what the Convoy folks believe just does  not  pass the smell test

A lot of people have no idea how the world really works a pretty obvious thing if you read a few FB posts

Good read. Shame he didn't touch on the fact a certain political party wants the complete elimination of publicly funded education... and the other party isn't keen at all at fixing what those muppets do when they do have the conch.

So you read it yourself or you're trusting the interpretation of someone else who may have read it?

" What do you all think?

I know 2 guys on their way there. One is stuck in a jam on hwy 17, one is outside Ottawa. They both say its bigger than the media is reporting.

I feel like this will be a big moment in Canadian history "

I think you guys lost but that should have been a forgone conclusion
